Some of the milkweed plants have had a chance to produce new leaves after the onslaught of monarch caterpillars last month.
Mama monarch's efforts are once again rewarded.
These two little ones are now munching away on the narrow leaf milkweed Asclepias fascicularis.
As you can see, the ever present pesky aphids are on the milkweed as well.
I try to carefully squish them between my fingers and wipe them off the plants.
